Montverde Academy held its new Upper-school building groundbreaking ceremony at MVA's Learning Village grounds, the site of the Academy's former MacKenzie Upper-school.

On hand were the school's trustees, elected officials, students and the faculty. Senator Alan Hayes and Legislator Larry Metz each addressed the crowd. Remarks were given by the school's headmaster, Kasey Kesselring, Dean of the Upper School, Troy Urquhart and school prefect, Ciara Hopkins.

The new structure will feature 36,000 square feet of learning area. Architecturally it will be a mirror of the former McKenzie Building which it replaces. But the new building will have features and additions that make it more conducive to learning and in keeping with modern technology.

The Academy's newest structure will also operate as the location for MVA's Upper-school administration offices, Upper-school computer lab, college counseling offices, and IT department.

"A considerably large study-hall area will also be constructed within the building to facilitate study and research environments and to allow for the George H. Rast Library to better accommodate student seating," said Kesselring.
